The World Health Organisation has announced that their numbers show five million people die from smoking around the world every year and warn that the number could rise if more stringent measures aren’t taken to minimise smoking’s impact.

WHO also stated that 600,000 people die every year from passive smoking, ie. inhaling someone else’s cigarette smoke. Last year, WHO unveiled six strategies that countries could implement to protect their people from the harm of cigarettes.

However, less than 10% of the world’s population is covered by any one of those six strategies, which include smoking bans, higher tobacco taxes and bans on tobacco advertising. Another clear example of how the world works.

And yet…Marijuana is illegal in most countries. Can someone help understand the logic behind this?
